As the summer slowly winds down, we find ourselves grasping more and more for just a taste of hockey. Binge watching movies like The Mighty Ducks, Slapshot, and Miracle over and over have become the norm as we tick off the days until training camp opens and preseason begins.
Penguin fans have it a little easier. Fans from across the world watch Twitter and Instagram like their lives depended on it, trying to find out where the Stanley Cup will be next. What player has The Cup, where will public appearances be, can we get a picture with The Cup, etc. and other questions of the like flood the Penguins Twitter feed daily.
Unless you are lucky enough to be a season ticket holder or by some miracle have a day off of work, a chance for fans to even see the Stanley Cup are far and few between but that doesn't stop fans from day dreaming about what a day with the Stanley Cup would be like? What would they do with it? Where would they take it? What family and friends would be involved?
I posed this question to fans on social media and the amount of replies that came flooding in was staggering. From taking The Cup to the top of mountains, filling it with gourmet macaroni and cheese, and other wild and crazy ideas, there was no lack of imagination from these faithful fans.
Below are compiled just a sampling of what fans had to say if they got to spend 24 hours with the famed and beloved Stanley Cup.
